    pictures of wrecked 911

    Hello, fellow Porsche enthusiasts! I just ran into an interesting website www.wreckedexotics.com. They have some archived photos of wrecked 911's among many other exotic cars. Although those photos appear to show that 911s in crashes hold up pretty well, they also remind us that we all should be mindful of safe driving.

    Amen to that brother! Scary as hell.

    Now that's funny, Holminator! I know our region just got a bunch of snow yesterday, and I guess you were just too bored not being able to take your 911 out for a drive. I guess a little humor while being stuck at home and being bored is ok. But really, kiddings aside, those pictures of wrecked 911's remind us that there is nothing funny about motor vehicle accidents. More of us 911 pilots survive, better it is for all of us. However well-engineered the 911's are, you can not overcome the laws of physics and no safety equipments will ever replace responsible mind of a driver. By the way, is it just me or those pictures indicate that 911's appear to have a rather weak A and B pillars? I suppose a roll bar would help.

    Those are some gross pics.
    I dunno which is worse: Someone making a site like this, or us checking it out. But perhaps in some sick way we can all learn from this, and realize that death is only on moronic move away.
    I saw pics of a Boxster that had hit a conrete pillar sideways at hi speed.
    One side of the car was touching the other, and the driver was chanceless

    Same with the two 911's that were drag racing on a freeway. One got away... the other didnt. The car looked like it had been thru a grinder.

    Yuck.
    Like they used to say on Hill Street Blues:
    "Let's be careful out there".

    Clearly, I am more at fault than the rest of the crew. Perhaps my sick & twisted humor is a cry for help.

    They used to have a 'no fatal crashes' policy, dunno if it's still used or not.

    Hell, I'm no saint. I used to have a field day on rotten.com...until I had enough.
    I'm just not sure what all this blood & gore actually does to us...seriously.
    Maybe I'm just getting old, and heck-I dont even have children, so it's not that kinda PC I'm into.
    It just makes me sick to my stomach to see all these drivers destroy their own and especially other people's lives for a few miles of adrenaline rush.
    Like I said, I'm definately no saint - but I feel a lot less urge to floor it and drive like a moron these days than I did back when I was in my 20ies.
    I used to think 350 bhp was slow...now I feel my Boxster S is ample speed for me...old fart

    I dunno.
    Seeing pics like these just makes me think about how fast you can fubar yourself and your loved ones.
    *sob*

    Brunner:
    There are fatal crashes galore on that site. No doubt. I was in there for 5 minutes and found 3.
